Non-Profit of the Week: The Arts Fund
Source: The Arts Fund
The mission of The Arts Fund is to create, fund and administer programs and projects that foster the arts for the people of Santa Barbara County; to act as a catalyst which maximizes the effectiveness of arts resources and to nurture collaborative relationships with other arts organizations.
For more than 30 years The Arts Fund has been an incubator for emerging artists in Santa Barbara County. Located in the Funk Zone, we offer the only Community Gallery in the Santa Barbara area where we showcase the work of local artists of all ages and identities from the Santa Barbara region. We stimulate the expansion of creativity by offering art education, professional development and curatorial training in studio and gallery environments to emerging artists including teenage, university and postgraduate students. We connect the greater community to local artists, curators and sponsors to celebrate and enrich our community’s cultural experience and creative possibilities. As a founder and principal organizer of the Funk Zone Art Walk we are the epicenter of the cultural explosion in the Funk Zone.
Please join us at The Arts Fund on Tuesday, December 5th from 5:30-6:30pm for a discussion with the artists and curator of our current exhibition, "Eyes of Another". The event is free and open to all ages.
Moderator Torrie Cutbirth will be joined by artists Pamela Benham, Lety Garcia, Diane Giles, Holli Harmon, Ruth Ellen Hoag, Cynthia Martin, Maria Miller and curator Rosemarie Gebhart.
